4-H Club Donates Toys to Toyland Express

Posted:

Many children want their dream toy this Christmas...

While other kids only dream of having a toy.

Stephanie Scheurer explains how one 4-H club is making some dreams come true.

December brings us Christmas...

With presents big and small...

"Barbies," says Haley Boeder, Vice President, Hay Creek Kids 4-H Club.

"Marvel toys, superheros," says Sophie Lind, President, Hay Creek Kids 4-H Club.

But sharing them with others, brings the most joy of all.

Hay Creek Kids 4-H Club is making dreams come true this season.

"There are kids who are asking for snow pants or boots or a coat or a backpack and for us to be able to give them something they don't need, but something that's kind of fun, I think that will bring a lot of joy to them," says Michele Lind, Leader, Hay Creek Kids 4-H Club.

The Hay Creek Kids are donating over 21 toys to KXMB's Toyland Express.

"Our goal is to teach the kids what it's like to work together as a group, to earn money and then to make decisions to spend that money wisely and to benefit our community," says Lind.

Lind says service is a big part of what they teach their kids in 4-H.

She hopes that giving back will be something that sticks with these young leaders into adulthood.

But I think it's safe to say the Hay Creek Kids already see the importance of giving back.

"Just to be with the community and help them out," says Boeder.

"To give back to some of the kids that don't always have the stuff that we can have," says Sophie Lind, President.

The joy of brightening other's lives with generous gifts becomes, for these kids, the magic of Christmas.

If you would like to donate toys to Toyland Express, there are barrels at each entrance of the North Walmart, Target, and Kirkwood Mall.

They'll be accepting toys through Sunday December 22nd.
